England: East England Food Recap
And the last post – recapping the cuisine of East Anglia. While seeking local and authentic English food along the coast on this trip, the old joke kept crawling into my mind – “Heaven is where the police are British, the cooks are French, the mechanics German, the lovers Italian and it’s all organised by the Swiss. Hell is where the chefs are British, the mechanics French, the lover’s Swiss, the police German and it’s all organised by the Italians”. Yep, English food is, generally speaking, pretty dreadful – fatty, sloppy, overly deep fried, and 90% revolving around fastfoody fish’n’chips. If you are seeking a heart attack, then you are sure to enjoy bacon bap for breakfast, massive portion of haddock or cod deepfried fish’n’chips for lunch, and bangers and mash for dinner. It was definitely fun and filling to try all this, but I can’t imagine surviving on this longer then a week (probably got an annual doze of cholesterol). Traveling along the coast offered a lot of seafood as well – mostly crabs and fresh fish, which was truly fantastic and delicious.
